    When i craft a soul glaive, it has a range of 11

    But when i equip it the range changes to 10

    same with a cyclone, freshly crafted it is range 9 but changes to 8 equiped.


    Any idea why? what am i missing?





    Side note, is there still a hit chance penalty for close range with a throwing weapon?

    range is based on your strength so to get max range I think you need 150 strength. and last I read yes there is.

    I believe they reduced it to 140 str for max range a while back, not 100% sure. I also recall there being a way to minimize the hit chance penalty? I made a thrower and rarely play him because I could never quite figure out the whole "sweet spot" thing.

    To get around the Hit chance penalty I seem to remember you needed GM Swordmanship too.
    They may have changed it though, not certain
